OC_08_PinkGreen_4C_G_jpgInsulating your attic is one of those home improvement projects that doesn’t really add any curb appeal or aesthetic “wow” factor, but it provides such tremendous benefits for homeowners that it might be one of the most rewarding projects you take on. At Advanced Exteriors we want your home to be as comfortable, cost effective and energy efficient as possible. If you don’t have attic insulation, or you have insufficient attic insulation, you’re probably letting a tremendous amount of heat escape through your attic in the winter, meaning that you are probably colder than you need to be and your energy bills are probably higher than they need to be.
Unlike some home improvements, adding insulation almost always pays for itself within a few years, and after that the additional savings you realize go straight to your bottom line. According to Energy Star, the attic is usually where you can find some of the largest opportunities to make your home more energy efficient. By adding insulation in your attic, you can maintain the desired temperature throughout your home with greater ease – particularly in climates that experience cold weather in the winter months. Additionally, when combined with proper attic and roof ventilation, insulation can also help to alleviate the formation of dangerous ice dams in the winter and help protect the integrity of your roof. Energy Star has divided the country into eight zones, based on average climate, and has insulation recommendations for each zone.

Most of the St. Louis metro area falls in the northernmost edge of zone 4; however, a few of the northern St. Louis municipalities actually fall along the southern edge of zone 5. Insulation level are specified by R-Value. R-Value is a measure of insulation’s ability to resist heat traveling through it. The higher the R-Value the better the thermal performance of the insulation. The Energy Star recommendation for zone 4 is for insulation with an R-value between 38 and 60 and between 49 and 60 in zone 5. As a general rule, Advanced Exteriors recommends that St. Louis area homeowners insulate their home to R-49 or approximately 16.5 inches.
